When individuals are left without proper treatment, they can not manage their own symptoms and worsen with time. One proven treatment for dual diagnosis is Cognitive Behavioral Therapy, or CBT. This therapy technique "is a solution-focused approach to treatment, oriented toward solving problems and learning skills.(1)" Addiction is rarely the only issue facing clients and is often just a symptom related to underlying issues related to depression and/or mood disorders. By creating individualized treatment plans focused on Dual Diagnosis, clients at Ventura Recovery Center have a much higher chance at achieving long-term sobriety. We are ending addiction one person at a time, one day at a time.
